FDOT Academies

FDOT’s Road to Leadership program includes three levels of training and professional development for employees in supervisory positions. The three academies are progressive and should be taken in the order described below. The recommended time period between each level is three years.



Supervisors Academy (Course No. IPS-0001) is required for employees upon appointment into a supervisory position and focuses on managing direct reports. This course is designed to be delivered at least twice per year in each district or region, depending on the number of new supervisors hired and available funding.

 

Management Academy (Course No. IPS-0002) builds on the foundation presented in the Supervisors Academy and focuses on managing teams and/or projects. This course is designed to be delivered once per year in each district or region, depending on available funding. Approval by Assistant Secretaries, District Secretaries or the Executive Director of the Turnpike Enterprise is required for participation.

 

Leadership Academy (Course No. IPS-0003) is a two-week (10 day) program focusing on Senior Management Service (SMS) or Selected Exempt Service (SES) managers and builds on the foundation presented in both the Supervisors and Management Academy. The content is delivered by a vendor associated with the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) and includes components geared to the transportation industry. Approval by Assistant Secretaries, District Secretaries or the Executive Director of the Turnpike Enterprise is required for participation.

The Graduate Leadership Academy (Course No. SU-20-0053) is an Executive Team approved program for those who have completed the Leadership Academy. Approval by Assistant Secretaries, District Secretary or the Executive Director of the Turnpike Enterprise is required to register for or withdraw from this program. The focus is on current leadership topics and trends. Members of the Executive Team meet with the participants to discuss current programs and challenges facing the department.
